This summer (slash every summer in Western New York) our goal is to get outside and stay outside as much as possible. Which is why you should make sure to save this guide in your digital back pocket. Keep reading for a list of every rooftop patio in Buffalo and Western New York.

Pro tip: Rooftop hours can be a bit scattered, so make sure to check in with each spot before visiting to ensure you have up to date info about what’s being offered and when. And when you can, snag a reservation.
